Hold onto you panties, ladies! Mistaken Identity is a scorching ride that will have you wiggling in your seat and screaming for your lover by the end of the first chapter!
Beautiful twins and a wedding set the stage for this erotic thriller. Denise, a frigid but gorgeous schemer is about to be married for all the wrong reasons-money and prestige. Her mirror image, Dana, is the total opposite-quiet, unassuming but a whiz at business. These twins have always been competitive and Denise thinks she has the upper hand when she snags the man of Dana's dreams as her fiancé-sexy professional football player, Jerome Lott.
The table turns, however, when Dana tries on Denise's gown and Jerome barrels in and makes love to who he thinks is Denise just before the nuptials...and Dana allows him. Can you feel the tension?
Jerome realizes his mistake too late but the flames have been ignited and he wants more Dana. Embarrassed, Dana tries to extricate herself from the now delicate situation but Denise blackmails her into "assuming her role" for the honeymoon and beyond. Dana reluctantly agrees but sees no way out. However, Dana is speechless when it is revealed that the actual ceremony was a sham and the "real" marriage will be performed on the honeymoon. And guess whose name is on the birth certificate presented? Dana's.
Denise, meanwhile, changes her mind and decides she wants to be Jerome's trophy wife...minus the sex. Jerome is frustrated and turns to Dana to vent his frustrations. Dana tries to resist but eventually their "in-law" status progresses into a satisfying relationship for both.
As the story moves along, I am at first puzzled by Jerome's mood swings and the question he always asks Dana, "Can you love two people at the same time?" I am further enthralled when, after a night of lovemaking, he proclaims he is not Jerome Lott. The plot thickens when Dana discovers she is pregnant with twins...but there is a problem-they have different DNA. Who is really whom? I'm not telling.
Mistaken Identity captured my attention from the beginning. Sylvia Hubbard is a master of the cliffhanger and many times, her "hangers" left me screaming in anticipation. Her twists and turns are unique, the tension between the characters palpable, and the sex steams up the room. Even without the sex, the suspense will keep you turning the pages. And the last few chapters...they just blew me away.
The situations are real, the characters make you believe in them, the sex is sizzling and the outcome will make you green with envy. I can't speak for anyone else, but I sure wouldn't mind changing places with Dana. You will not be disappointed.
